The benefits of G-Cloud ​​​for government

Since its conception in April 2012 more than £550 million has been spent through the framework, with over 40% of that being spent with the 87% of small and medium sized businesses, just like Core. There are 1453 unique suppliers on the G-Cloud offering 19,966 services to the public sector.  Central Government are the biggest spenders with the G-Cloud responsible for over 75% of the sales.  

 

G-Cloud offers public sector organisations access to Cloud services whilst reducing the risk by:

  • Pre approving organisations who can supply all public sector organisations.
  • Negates the need to run a full tender process.
  • Is open, honest and transparent with an easy to navigate digital catalogue of services.
  • Ideal for risk averse organisations with limited budgets and tight timeframes.

 
Working with leading departments across the public sector, we are able to use tried and tested methods to ensure your IT project goes to plan and meets the needs of the service, its users and any security compliance.

 Five common misconceptions

  • Cloud isn’t fully secureopen/close
    Security is a primary concern given the highly sensitive data handled by government organisations. The UKTI system was referred to the CESG for security clearance. Core was awarded the first RMADS G-Cloud supplier status accredited to “official” level. With a full identity and access management service, security is guaranteed from any location.
  • It can be expensive to implement open/close
    Core’s platform is priced on a subscription basis, and usage is tracked automatically. It is easily scalable and doesn’t require high volume roll-out in order to deliver savings. In the case of UKTI there was a 40% saving per user, and a consequent saving across the organisation.
  • It doesn’t deliver true remote working open/close
    The infrastructure developed for UKTI put in place flexible, secure and instant access to computing resources whether in the office, at home or out of the country. Our log-in system is fast and reliable.
  • You have to switch supplier every two years open/close
    Under the G-Cloud imitative it is mandatory that the contracts are for two years. After this time it is a requirement and that the contract is reviewed. There is no obligation to change partner. Rather it is an opportunity to ensure that your contract is the best value for money.
  • Working with an SME can be risky open/close
    They may not have the experience or capacity to deliver to a large organisation We’re proud that our knowledge, expertise and experience has enabled us to deliver solutions to complex multi-national organisations in both private and public sector. The UKTI project has been rolled out to 2,500 staff to date in 107 countries.
